09-21-2012, 06:37 PM
My question is simple can you own more thna one type of a ship that is the same Example can you own more thna 1 Odyssey Class Srat Vruiser i have 1 from the one yar birthday but can the fleet own more thna 1 at a time. As in own 3 Odyssey Class Star Cruisers or six or more. Or can you just own the one and that is it.

You may have as many ships as you want. In reguards to the Fleet ships they will cost less if you already own the Tier 5 versions.

If you don't own the Tier 5 version in some cases its cheaper to buy the fleet versions if your fleet has them unlocked however you will not be able to claim the fleet ship for free with another toon like the C-Store ships.

No, apparently, you cannot. I've wanted this for a while - so that I could have one fleet escort set up for PvP and another for STFs. Right now I have my fleet escort for STFs and my MVAE for PvP.

probably really just easier to keep the changeable parts in the inventory, and then just change the BOFFs and weapons, etc...
atleast no need to find a shipyard anytime you want to queue for pvp or stf.
It makes sense if you prefer another type of ship for PVP than for stfs, but the same ship twice only with different equip...atleast to me that seems very inconvenient and unnecessary ofcourse.
and in your case (two fleet escorts) an unnecessary expense, considering each cost 4 fleet ship modules.
But then again logic seems not to apply anyway, since fleet escort is inferior to most other fleet escorts ships like the fleet patrol escort, that can actually copy the BOFF layout and has superior shield and hull.
To spend 4 fleet ship modules for an inferior ship is one thing, but to actually want a second is beyond me.

but to each his own, i would say.

I think you will find you can but with the Fleet ships if you buy one you cannot claim it again as a free ship as I said above only C-Store ships can do that.

But if you did want two fleet ships exactly the same you have to buy it twice. I've not tried nor do I want to but the second time you buy the same fleet ship assuming we are talking about the same toon it should only cost you 1 fleet module instead of the four.

you mean kind of a mentaly disadvantaged discount? Srsly who in his right mind would want to buy 2 exact same ships on the same toon? If you can convince me of that, you Sir should go into politics...or advertisement, srsly you then should have no porblems to sell running shoes to people in wheelchairs.

Well apparently "Crusty8mac" wants two ships the same. I'm not 100% sure the second would only cost 1 fleet module either it might cost 4.

But each to his/her own if that person wants two fleet ships exactly the same I'm sure Cryptic would be happy to take their money.

I would just swap over the consoles like you suggested or not even that any ship built for pvp shouldn't have any problems in pve.

You can't own more than one of the same ship; however there really is no point to owning more than one, you can carry stuff to switch in your inventory.

Why not? If the game could reliably keep track of BOff positions and Power Tray skill assignments, I would buy more than one ship if that meant being able to swap configurations more easily. As it it, I take screenshots of my Power Tray.

Of course, I'd prefer (MUCH prefer) if Cryptic simply allowed us to save multiple configurations for the same ship. Yeah, I'm not holding my breath... this has been requested for ages.
